This deal is back on but it's 25% off instead of the 30% from before.


Sorry for the late post but I was in TRU picking up some of their clearance items and while checking out saw the PS2's with clearance tags $84.98 had the girl scan it $59.49 SOLD! They had the black one too no bundles at this store but they did have them at another one I went to later, couldn't get it scan b/c the videogame section was empty.

Saw the ceramic white PS2 singstar bundle but it wasn't on clearance completely forgot about this "forgettable" bundle.

Also, p/u'd
PS3 slim media expansion bar $7
EA MMA $7
PS2 slim carrying case $10.50
Kung Fu Rider was $7 also but I got this earlier in the week

nice, it went down to $59.49 because of the extra 30% off clearance they had until today. Nice deal, but for the rest of the CAGs' it will cost $84.98 if they go tomorrow.

AH crap that 30% off. I didn't think about that. I already hit the store up for that but didn't see any ps2s. Again, where were they located? behind the counter? on the floor? i didn't see any.

Its probably too late to try to get down there tonight anyway i guess

You sure this is everywhere and not just some mistake at your store? I need a PS2 mine broke last year.


Didn't find these in the "clearance" section they were behind CS in the glass cases with red clearance stickers on the shelf priced at $99 so I had her take it out an scan it $84.98 but b/c of the "up to 75% off clearance items that end in 0 or 8" the 30% off got it too $59.49. The TRU I bought it from is an old store it's been there as long as I can remember(I just turn 31 today) the 2nd TRU is < 3 yrs old new contruction so there setup is completely different the counter sits in the middle with all the games surrounding it. The 1st TRU has most of the consoles behind the row of registers if you went looking for them you'd completely miss them altogether I was just lucky the girl was using the last register on the end.

Yes, it's in the OP the only one I didn't have scanned was the toy story bundle b/c the videogame section was empty at the 2nd TRU it was 15 minutes before closing.

I did, he did it rang up 99, I told him about the 30% off, and he said it's with prices that end in 8 or a 0 which is odd because retail prices don't end in 8's or 0's mostly .99. not sure what to do

Here's the #'s from my receipt
711719770701(silver console)

also, BB has the official Sony memory cards for $10 on clearance & I think the madcatz 32 MB are $10 too gotta get 2-3 b/c there's a whole lotta games I'll get from GS and the memory cards will be getting used up fast. I think BB has the controllers on clearance too $14 or less...they're wired but won't effect me too much b/c my PS3 sits close anyways plus I usually have the charging cable close anyways so what's the difference.

If they're putting PS2's on clearance, does this mean other stores will, is it finally the time to grab a new PS2 before it's too late?

Target's already done it there long gone now. GS & the BB's in my area have TONS of PS2's once they start I'll snag 2 more using RZ certs since I didn't get a warranty.

It has been mentioned in the Target clearance thread that the PS2 has been marked down to as low as $50 (YMMV). Also, my local Kmart no longer carries PS2.

I did a search for "PS2 DISCONTINUED" and one of the sites said that Sony made the last of the PS2's in 2010 and that the current stock is the last of them. Of course you can't belive everything you read on the internet, it could just be speculation.

Regardless, if you would like one sealed I would start looking here soon.

Unfortunately, I just got back from TRU and the black PS2 is still $99.99 and I let the guy take it out from the class cabinet and scan it.

Pretty sure they're seperate. Not that it matter anything since only a couple of games are worth playing online-actually just 1 now, that being SOCOM 2 since Capcom cut the servers for both RE Outbreaks.

Didn't these silver ones from two or three years ago? I think Sony has only been putting out black ones for last two or so years. If that is the case, it may be more that the Silver SKU is on clearance and the black PS2 are not being cleared out.

2 for me(1 as a back-up) & 1 for my best friend he outta work and child support kills the little extra $ he gets from the temp service so I'll pass of since he definitely can't afford a PS3 even after price drop plus he has ps2 games from when he had 1 before it died.

Ahhh. So that must be a universal clearance for the memory cards at Best Buy. I saw those when I was in my closest store last week sometime. From what I remember though, those MadCatz memory cards are complete and utter shit, unless they changed them since the PS2 first came out.

I bought one when I got my first PS2 in 2001 and the fuckin' thing kept saying it had to format EVERY time you went to save something on it. So unless you switched your save data over to an official card before shutting down the prior time you were SOL and would lose HOURS worth of saves each time.

By the way, silver Dual Shock 2's are on clearance at Kmart for $4.97 each if you can find them and the blue DS2's are on clearance at Sears for around the same price I believe.

I've never had an official PS2 memory card but I've had a MadCatz 8MB memory card since launch and it still works fine.

The huge ones were the pita ones. Not sure bout the regular sized ones that were the exact same size as the official ones. All I remember thinking to myself was that I was getting 4x the save space as a normal PS2 card and for about the same price. I returned that thing the next day.

Now if it were an Interact brand memory card, I don't think I would've had an issue. I had one of those from the PS1 era and it worked flawlessly up till when I finally offloaded it.

I'd always buy official first party products. Somebody bought a MadCatz controller for PS1 and it sucked!

Interact was ok back in the day and I've heard MadCatz is getting better in quality, but if the official stuff is as cheap as the off brand after a while then it's just a no brainer. But I'm still groaning that PS2 controllers and memory cards didn't drop to reasonable levels up until the end of the past gen(now). I distinctly remember PS1 controllers going to $15 new before that system was phased out and PS1 memory cards being around $10-15 as well.

That's why I'm glad the PS3 has an internal HDD and you can make internal PS1/PS2 cards, so you can free up space on your old memory cards if you want to.
